Family Friendly


family friendly


We pride ourselves on making sure little ones have a great time when they visit us at Spring Farm.  We can provide you with everything you need including cot, highchair, toys, children’s books and films. The cottages have luxury interiors but are also robust and safe so you can relax while your kids run around.

Many of the Places to Visit are suitable for children but here are just some of our favourite activities, especially for small people.

Longleat (16 Miles)

Enter a land of adventure. Where lions roam. Tigers stalk. And monkeys swing. Travel through time in a grand stately home. Lose yourself in one of the magical mazes. Hold exotic creatures from the ends of the Earth.  All in a day at this very memorable family day out.

Cheddar Gorge (19 Miles)

Explore Britain’s biggest gorge from the dramatic cliffs rising 450ft to the stunning stalactite caverns. This world-famous site in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, reveals many fascinating stories of our prehistoric ancestors, and is an international centre for caving and rock climbing. A great day out for families to explore caves, waterfalls and an open-top bus ride through the gorge.

Cowtastic Farm Park (5 Miles)

Great for smaller children, this huge indoor play barn will keep little ones occupied for hours.  An outdoor petting zoo opens in the summer.  All adjacent to a great farm shop that serves family friendly food.

Wellow Trekking Centre (5 Miles)

Horse riding and small petting farm. Children as young as five can ride. There is also a small cafe on-site.

The Bishop’s Palace, Wells (14 Miles)

Something for everyone, the Palace is suited to children of all ages with gardens to explore and a new dragon’s lair where the kids can run off steam.

@Bristol Science Centre, Aquarium and M Shed, Bristol (15 Miles)

@Bristol is a completely interactive science and engineering experience for children of all ages and home to the UK’s only 3D Planetarium.  Why not make a day of it and visit the aquarium next door and walk along the river to the M Shed.

Berrow Beach (30 Miles)

This non-swimming beach is a kids favourite.  You can park right on the sandy beach, so take a picnic.  Explore the sand dunes and take a walk along the water front to explore the ship wreck.  (Please visit the website, as there is sinking mud at low tide).

Sydney Gardens and the Holburne Museum (8 Miles)

Great for a low key morning or afternoon.  Sydney Park Gardens is great for biking and scooting, has a children's play area.  It has two beautiful bridges for your little train spotter and leads to the Kennet and Avon Canal for boat lovers.  The Holborne Museum itself is not that great for kids but it does have parking and a good cafe with outdoor seating.  It is located a short walk from Bath City Centre so you can amble into town for shopping/sight seeing afterwards.

Victoria Park (7 Miles)

HUGE children's park complete with merry-go-round and quite often, a bouncy castle. There is a little coffee shop on the corner to stock up on supplies - great for a picnic on sunny days.  There is also a duck pond and if you fancy a walk you can see the Royal Crescent from the park.

Royal Victoria Park is situated just north/west of the city centre on the Upper Bristol Road (A4).  There is limited car parking within the park, some at parking meters, and Charlotte Street car park is nearby.  We usually park on the road by the coffee shop on the corner of Park Lane and Upper Bristol Road.  

Alexandra Park (7 Miles)

A small but perfectly situated park.  There is a small kids play area but it is an outstanding park as you get a birds-eye view of Bath City Centre.
